Street named after Halyna Sevruk

    Halyna Sevruk (b. Samarkand, Soviet Union, 1929 – d. 2022, Kyiv, Ukraine) was a Ukrainian artist who was particularly notable for her ceramics and mosaics. Her art often incorporated themes related to Ukrainian history and culture. She was a member of the Ukrainian Sixtiers, a dissident movement of intellectuals within the Soviet Union in the 1960s. Sevruk was born in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. As a result of forced emigration, her parents had been in Samarkand starting in 1920. Her father, Sylvestr Martynovych Sevruk, was an architect and came from a Polish family. Her mother Iryna Dmytrivna was Ukrainian and was related to the noted architect Ivan Hryhorovych-Barskyi. The year after Halyna Sevruk’s birth, the family moved to Kharkiv, the largest city in the northeast region of Ukraine. They moved again in 1944, settling in the city of Kyiv.
